Unwholly (YA)

Unwholly. Neal Shusterman. 2012. Simon & Schuster. 416 pages.

I really loved Neal Shusterman's Unwind; it was just so compelling! The world he created in his dystopia was fascinating, and I loved all three narrators. It was a book I just couldn't put down and just had to recommend.

Unwholly is the sequel to Unwind. It was compelling and action-packed. Readers meet even more teens about to be unwound including a tithe or two--those raised with the knowledge and belief that unwinding is something sacred. Readers even get to meet a character whose very existence challenges everything, a boy named Cam. It's a blend of old characters (Lev, Connor, Risa) and new characters (Cam, Starkey, Miracolina). I liked getting to know the new characters, they definitely add something to the story. And, of course, I enjoyed following the old characters.

Because this was a sequel, it is hard to talk about it without spoiling the first book. And truly, even if it wasn't a sequel, it's one best left for you to discover.
